Golfer's Elbow

Golfer's elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of one's forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside on one's elbow.  The pain could also spread into one's forearm and wrist, as well.

Symptoms of golfer's elbow are characterized by:

·         Pain and tenderness on the inner side of one's elbow

·         Stillness in the elbow

·         Weakness in one's hands or wrists

·         Numbness or tingling usually in the ring  and little fingers

The pain of golfer's elbow doesn't have to keep you away from your favorite activities.  With rest and appropriate treatment, one can get back into the swing of things quickly.
